Scrum Dine With Me at Cinnamon Kitchen

Scrum dine

On Wednesday 21 October rugby stars Jason Leonard OBE, Martin Offiah MBE and Lee Mears take possession of executive chef Vivek Singh’s restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen in the City for a celebrity cook-off in aid of Wooden Spoon, a charity supporting mentally and physically disadvantaged children.

Millie Clode, Sky Sports News presenter, will guide diners through four courses of modern Indian food cooked by the rugby stars. With a panel of food critics to help drop-kick dishes into touch, diners will then get to make the final decision on who is the best sports-chef of the night – will it be Jason Leonard, the former England rugby union prop otherwise known as ‘The Fun Bus’, former rugby league great Martin Offiah, or Bath and England hooker Lee Mears?

Sky Sports will be filming all the action from the kitchen on the night and screens in the restaurant will ensure guests don’t miss a thing.

After dinner and before the ‘Scrum Dine With Me’ winner is announced, an auction of money-can’t-buy prizes will go under the hammer to tempt rugby and food enthusiasts to dig deep. Guests will then have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the players.

Tickets to ‘Scrum Dine With Me’ are priced at £125 per person or £1,000 for a table of 10. The price includes cocktails and canapés in the restaurant’s bar and lounge, Anise, before a four-course dinner at Cinnamon Kitchen. To book, call 020 7626 5000 or email
